National Renal Indigenous Resource Collaborative (NRIRC)



The National Renal Indigenous Resource Collaborative (NRIRC) was a joint initiative between Kidney Health Australia and Amgen Australia. The initiative aimed to pool and share existing education resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The project was committed to the broader goal of a healthy lifestyle and cardiovascular disease risk reduction, but with a specific focus on kidney health.

Existing education materials were researched by the NRIRC Steering Committee, and judged as quality materials to assist in re-enforcing key messages and educating the community about kidney health. These materials were made available as free and downloadable content. It was hoped that this screening process would assist in identifying gaps in existing resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, from which work could be commissioned to fill those gaps, with a focus on standardising messages around chronic kidney disease.
